View Full Version : [ubuntu] Startup Freeze

September 24th, 2008, 01:57 PM
Okay, well I have installed Ubuntu after following the steps in a previous thread Link (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=927958).

It installed after a while.

But now when I start up, with the splash screen (Ubuntu) and the progress bar, it freezes like a fraction of the way along the progress bar.

Any Ideas?

you might have a bad installation. did you verify the cd? you probably will have to reinstall.

At the grub screen, select your ubuntu entry and then press "e". Scroll to the line which begins "kernel" and press "e" again.

Now delete the words "quiet splash" from the end of that line. Press enter then press "b" to boot.

See this link for screenshots: http://www.foogazi.com/2007/10/27/remove-the-ubuntu-splash-screen/

This will boot without a splash screen and with a lot of progress messages. Take note of any messages it seems to hang on, and particularly error messages.
